I know I haven't been around much lately. I've been really working hard on my store, but I just had the strangest day.

I've had  something happen that have just blown me out of the water.  I was GIVEN a car!!!!! A mini van to be exact. I'll be taking possession of it next week. I'm still in shock! It hasn't sunk in yet that I'll be independently mobile. I'm just speechless with gratitude. It has been almost a year without a car!

Lil, that is awesome.

Jo, you do have otherworldly powers. Now I am sure of it!

Jo, did you copy/paste Lana's first post by mistake, meaning to quote, or something?

Chef, something weird happened when I went in to edit the post. It didn't seem to stick and so I did it a second time. Don't know how Jo got in there....It's magic, I tell you!Wink

I can deal with magic. No problem, at all.

But I suspect that Jo was posting at the same time as you tried to save your second post, and our system somehow got y'all's posts bungled up. Funny, though.

Delighted for you both having had exactly the same experience and posting about it at precisely the same time - gosh that was spooky! Laughing

Seriously - delighted to hear your good news!

Nope, I didn't quote it at all. 

My (now missing) post was a gushing congratulations about the gift of a minivan; plus a comment on the second part of Lana's post, which she ultimately deleted.  It was all present and correct when I pressed submit, then as you see it now when I came back.

It is kinda like winning the lottery. I didn't expect it but could really REALLY use some help in the car department.

I'm truly happy for you, Lana.  Smile

However ... 

do you really know that person who's giving you the van? I mean - really, really know them?

Have you checked for little antennae sticking up from the top of their head?

Teeny baby aliens coming out of their pockets, attaching themselves to your computer and posting forum messages, maybe?

Just wanna make sure ...

Hmmmmm didn't think about that. I mean, she's a dog person. That means she's OK, right? I didn't check for antennae.
